Katy Perry and her dashing beau, Russell Brand, will become Mr. and Mrs. Brand shortly, but there are a few details to figure out before they walk down the aisle. The bride is still iffy on the location, but there’s one aspect to her big celebration that she’s obviously spent some time thinking about: the wedding dress. As the white gown is quite possibly the most important part for the bride, it’s essential to pick out the most perfect dress. And Katy wants hers to mean something special … Keep reading »
If you’re in Paris, um, now (Hi Leo!), you’ll need to make a stop at Colette simply to check out their windows. Everyone knows Mt. Rushmore, featuring former presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. But Item Idem, aka Cyril Duval, a French fashion artist, decided to infuse a bit of style into the monstrous construction. He created an LED display called Mt. Blushmore, replacing the heads of state with notable fashion figures Anna Wintour, Karl Lagerfeld, Donatella Versace, and John Galliano. And now, Colette decided to honor the artist with his own window exhibit, meaning the busts of fashion greats are on display and available for all to see. It’s fashion meets politics in the most perfectly cheeky way. [Sassybella] Keep reading »
The arctic chill of Russia is what inspired John Galliano’s Fall 2009 collection. From balloon-y peasant blouses to full-skirted wool coats, everything echoed an Eastern European winter. Everything except the shoes, or more to the point: these shoes. Besides the furry pom-poms, nothing about Galliano’s Fall 2009 lace-up boots says winter. But that doesn’t stop us from loving them. They’re available in an array of colors, but our favorites are the red (here) and purple. Loving don’t mean buying though. These pretty pom-poms are sure to set one back a pretty penny: several hundred (over a grand?) dollars worth. [Fab Sugar] Keep reading »
It’s fun to look at men’s fashion show photos, if only to look at the models and their taut bodies. But the guys walking at Gareth Pugh, John Galliano, and Alexander McQueen didn’t look hot. No, they looked scary. In fact, they looked a lot like zombies. Could this be a pop culture trend in the making? Are zombies going to become the new vampires? One pop culture seems to think so. Or maybe the models are just depressed about the grim state of the economy. [NY Mag] Keep reading »
Instead of putting hats on his models, designer John Galliano had their hair crimped into chapeau-like structures. Don’t try this at home, people. [Christian Dior fashion show; Paris Fashion Week; 9/29/2008] Keep reading »
While we’re still not sure how we feel about men in tights, couture designers like John Galliano, Comme des Garçons, and Etro are putting men in skirts and sending them down the runway. And we’re not talking tribal Scottish kilts here either — a woman could easily wear these duds for dudes. The designer taste makers claim the look of a skirt for men has been catching on all over Europe this past season and now they have been showing off the menswear trend during the Spring/Summer 2009 Fashion Week in New York.

I love a ginger (hello, Prince Harry), but Carrot Top makes me want to vom. That’s why I couldn’t, for the life of me, figure out why John Galliano sent all of his amazingly gorgeous male models down the runway in Paris looking like the comedian walked out of a gay cabaret. If this becomes a trend, there’s going to be mutiny. Keep reading »
